Test Results

Thank you everyone for your prayers today! Luella handled her procedure today really well! There definitely were some tears but it was nothing like the last time! The test showed that there still is some reflux on left side but it has improved. The doctor felt that Luella is doing so well that there really shouldn't be a need to repeat this test again unless she starts having more problems with UTIs or bladder issues. She's been off of her daily antibiotic for 10 months and in that time she has not had a UTI and we hope that continues! She will have an ultrasound of her kidneys in about 6 months to see how her kidneys look and hopefully after that we'll get the all clear! :-) Luella was very glad to be heading home today! I couldn't help but take some pictures today - she was being just too cute! I thought I'd share with you. Thanks again for all your prayers!

Child Life brought in some dolls to pass the time while we waited for them to put in the catheter. Luella was excited to find a Cinderella and a Snow White.   ... a little disappointed there was no Belle though.

We passed a little more time by playing hide and seek. Isn't this just the cutest little "hider"!?!?

Luella all strapped and "sandwiched" in place for the test.

Luella was excited to find an Elmo drawing board in the room while waiting to see the doctor for the test results. She drew "Elmo with big teeth"!!

After the test and appointment we finally had lunch. Luella celebrated with her own tiny can of apple juice. She thought it was so fun! Cheers! :-)
